Let all of them unevolved monkeys perish.
2. "Palestinians" would love to mass murder us all.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.24.13)
Their covenants all say say so. Their leaders all say so. It's way past time for Israel to take off the gloves and deal with "Palestinians" as the genocidal foes they are. They need to be dealt with exactly as the WW II Allies dealt with the Nazis.

It is funny they whine about Israeli prisons when you consider how many people have been murdered or mutilated by Abbas' henchmen in PA jails, most for not paying protection money. I guess no one will investigate because that is why you expect from Abbas.
5. PA & Hamas prisons need probing urgently.
Sam ,   EU   (02.24.13)
Al-Haq, a Palestinian human rights organization has documented that torture is rampant in Palestinian prisons against their own Palestinian people. Other human rights groups have also revealed that both Fatah and Hamas have been shown to engage in unlawful arrests of fellow Palestinians, torture and killings of fellow Palestinians in detention, moving violently against fellow Palestinian political opponents, or those Palestinians deemed to be collaborators with Israel. Summary executions of Palestinians by Palestinians also being commonplace. Widespread use of torture to terrorize, extract information from fellow Palestinians, and to intimidate perceived political enemies are routine. How often are calls made for Palestinian prisons to be probed, or for international investigations into the deaths of Palestinians at the hands of their own people? The results of this joint post-mortem are to be welcomed, but the difference between attitudes towards the differing sides is palpable. Gilad Shalit's detention was lauded by the Palestinians, who refused him access to the International Red Cross or any human rights group. As another report amplified yesterday, an increasing number of Palestinian attempts to kidnap Israelis are ongoing. The media-circus drowns out the abuses of Palestinians by Palestinians, the corruption within Palestinian entities, the crimes of the Palestinian prisoners at the core of this unrest, and the Palestinian leaderships' own complicity and failures.

9. international investigation into prisons
Angela ,   WV, USA   (02.24.13)
I would say that this is a wonderful idea, but the investigation should include all prisons in all Arab and Muslim countries, and then we can see how they compare.
10. @6: imagine you' re brain-dead...
